Earlier this week, Nintendo released the Bayonetta 2 E3 trailer, in which Bayonetta’s new hairstyle was shown for the first time. Siliconera had the chance to ask the game’s producer, Yusuke Hashimoto, why Bayonetta’s hair was changed for the upcoming sequel. Hashimoto explained that Bayonetta isn’t the type of character with a dull personality, and that she enjoys changing her style, fashion sense and costumes in order to preserve her audacious figure. Bayonetta 2 will be released exclusively for Wii U in 2014.
“We think of it less as cutting her hair. Her personality is the type that would not want to remain stagnant. She would want to change her style, taste in fashion, and her costumes. Down the line in the series, she may make further changes to her appearance.”
